I've made this vinaigrette twice because my mother-in-law loves it so much. it is perfect and light and adds a lot of flavor to the salad without making me feel like I'm drenching it in dressing. Perfect!
I watched this episode (rerun) yesterday, and I agree with Mike NYC. Alice Waters appeared distracted
Did Alice really need to stick her entire hand into the vinaigrette, taste it, then stick her entire hand into it to taste it again? I thought Martha was going to gag when Alice asked her to taste it. Also, it seems Alice was on something during the show.
